Kicking the Stigma: Media Preview of Kurt Cobain’s Iconic Guitar

Beyond The Sidelines Benefiting Kicking The Stigma
Beyond The Sidelines is the first in-person fundraiser event to benefit Kicking The Stigma, the Indianapolis Colts, and Irsay family initiative to raise awareness about mental health disorders and remove the shame and stigma associated with these illnesses. Through the Beyond The Sidelines Event, the Irsay Family looks to grow Kicking The Stigma's impact on mental health awareness and treatment.
Funds raised go toward the Kicking The Stigma Action Grants, which support non-profits and organizations that raise awareness about mental health or provide mental health treatment services.
Kicking the Stigma: Find Your Anchor Event
As a part of Mental Awareness Month, the Irsay Family along with Indianapolis Colts players and staff took part in a Find Your Anchor Boxing Event. As a part of the event, the team boxed 300 care boxes for the grassroots movement charity aimed at suicide prevention, awareness and education.
